  2. I loved your post on urban foraging and am a first time follower of your page. I was born here in Jackson, but for the last 15 years have lived in some of the biggest cities in the world. I came back spinning tales if foraging to my friends and family only to have them Look at me with disbelief and disgust.

    I am currently running the bar at Bravo! And have thought doing a cocktail/ cooking class dealing primarily with naturally growing local urban ingridaints.

    If you have thoughts, I’d love to hear them.

  3. Bigfoots in Belhaven? I miss that gathering of wet eagles that Wayne Durette once hosted. We need to find that dude and see if he’s willing to be the co-host, sub-sponsor, guest of honor or whatever, and I’ll open The Shady Nook for the occasion!
